Pareo style

In the height of summer, and with the 'grandes vacances' in full swing, a scarf worn pareo style has become a wardrobe staple.. worn in whichever way, it's a perfect cover-up for a lunch by the beach or pool side.

How-to for the Pareo criss-cross (instead of using a scarf ring, you can simply cross the ends at your front and then tie them together behind your neck)

I'm away for a couple of weeks, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Wishing everyone a happy and beautiful summer xx
